I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse that was built in the middle 70's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for almost 41 years, with most of that time being full time!!! I recently had my knee replacement surgery done after putting it off for 6 years... I am NOW officially retired!!!!!

Summer Kitchen, Part 2, 2017


Today, I will be sharing Part 2 of my Summer Kitchen Series........

But first, I want to thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for featuring my post, Summer Patriotic Doll House, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Linky Party!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

In my last post, I shared what I call the focal wall in my Kitchen......
In my post, Summer Kitchen, Part 1, I shared the top half, above the chair rail, of this wall.......
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

In the previous post, I did not include the desk area of the Hutch......
Or the area below the chair rail....
I will be sharing those areas in this post.......

Let's start to the left of the hutch.......
A vintage wash board hangs on the wall.....
 A floral arrangement of red and yellow roses with LED lighted branches fill a vintage yellow milk can that I bought at a yard sale for $5.00 many years ago......
 On the floor is a red and white enamel pot with greenery, a vintage door stop and an iron..........
  Back over to the hutch.......
The desk area is ready for Summer........
With the lamp off, we can see better......
A hob nail vintage milk glass lamp.........
A green depression glass dessert dish with a pastry candle inside of it.......

More vintage pieces..........

A tray with strawberries on it..............
  A vintage pitcher and glasses.......
Vintage canning jars.......

A vintage red and white plate with a faux cherry pie on it.......
A copper planter filled with flowers......
Looks ready for a Summer picnic with the red and whie checked place mat............
The lower part of the desk.......
On top of a vintage metal picnic basket........
A copper tray and copper lantern.......
 Copper never went out of style in my Kitchen!!

Another vintage canning jar filled with faux fruit......
 A vintage looking tin and an old Heinz Ketchup bottle......
Over on the right side of the hutch.........
And old chalkboard and a rug beater and canning jar with flowers in it hangs from a vintage style hook.......
I hoped you enjoyed seeing my Country Victorian with a touch of Vintage style in the Kitchen......
